MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Hundreds of dollars in tools that were being used by volunteers to build a home through Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Panhandle were recently stolen from a project site, leaders of the nonprofit organization said Tuesday.
“We’d like to get our tools back,” said Brian Truman, the organization’s operations director.
The theft from a locked storage box at the construction site at Lair Way off Nadenbousch Lane south of Martinsburg was discovered on Monday, Jan. 16, Truman said.
The hand and power tools are believed to have been taken sometime over the weekend prior to theMartin Luther King Jr.holiday, according to Truman.
The project, which is being completed in partnership with area United Methodist churches in the Eastern Panhandle, is still expected to be completed by the end of February, according to Truman.
